One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the Education Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​

If you are interested in running for an elected executive position, please complete the nomination form and either send it into the office, or give it to an existing executive member. Please also attend our Annual General Meeting where we will hold our elections.

I've attached the PDF to link to the words 'nomination form'. 

This is what they have on the Midnapore School Council website. It will come in handy next year... I'll highlight in September prior to the AGM so there will be a process for new nominees.
